Abstract:

The numerical calculation of equilibrium states of elastic bodies under large deformation, where the governing differential equations are nonlinear, is considered. Newtons iterative method is modified by a reparametrization scheme which makes it possible to obtain a global solution in problems where buckling occurs. The method is applied to the problem of the buckling of a shallow clamped spherical shell under uniform pressure. Author
